Delta passenger records baggage handler 'recklessly' throwing bags, dropping stroller on ground

(FOX News) -- After seeing the latest viral airport video, you won’t be surprised next time your luggage arrives in less than ideal condition.

Delta passenger Joshua Swain Firth was at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York on Wednesday when he spotted employees tossing suitcases and a stroller down a chute to be loaded onto the plane, Inc. reports.

Firth recorded the workers, noting the lack of care taken to ensure the luggage didn’t get damaged. In the video, one suitcase is thrown with the handle still up and a stroller is tossed so carelessly enough that it bounces off the chute and falls to the ground.

"We witnessed this Delta Air Lines baggage handler recklessly tossing bags and a strollers yesterday. He was assaulting those bags. But the stroller was attempted murder," Firth wrote on Facebook, where he posted the video.

Many people commenting on the video expressed their anger over the ways the luggage was being handled, with others sharing stories of how their own luggage had been damaged in the past.

"See they always act like they don’t know how or why our bags are damaged. Smfh... this is disgusting. He doesn’t even know how hard people work to have their things," one person wrote.

"Yup they broke the handle on my $500 stroller!" someone else wrote.
